Setting Preferences for Siebel Diagnostic Tool

This topic describes Siebel Diagnostic Tool Preferences and provides a procedure for using this functionality.

About Siebel Diagnostic Tool Preferences

The Diagnostic Preferences screen allows you to specify the preferred values for the Enterprise, Group, Server, Component, Start Time, End Time, and User Name fields. Then, when you use the analysis screens—Event Log Analysis, Server Performance Analysis, and User Performance Analysis— Siebel Diagnostic Tool displays the values you specified in the Preferences screen by default to the same fields in each query form. However, you can override the value that you set in the Preferences screen at any time by entering a different value for the field or by resetting your preferences.

For example, if you plan to regularly monitor the GenTrig server component, you can choose GenTrig from the Component drop-down list in the Preferences screen. Then, when you go to any of the analysis screens, the GenTrig component appears as the default for the Component field.
